Manila to evacuate workers from parts of Iraq
(06-19 18:35)

The Philippines will evacuate its citizens from all areas of Iraq except the north due to the rapidly deteriorating security situation.
Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Charles Jose said 154 Filipinos in the Baghdad area are expected to be pulled out. The rest of the 900 Filipino workers in Iraq are located in Kurdistan, which remains relatively calm, and will not be asked to leave.
The Philippine Embassy in Baghdad and a rapid response team will assist the registration of Filipinos for repatriation, the department said.--AP
